Top Picks from Vintages' February 8th Release 

Chateau des Charmes Riesling Icewine 1999 Paul Bosc Estate (Niagara Peninsula)
$59.95 (375mL)
The quintessential style of Canadian Icewine against which other Riesling Icewines should be judged: golden straw colour with a honeyed peach and Botrytis nose; unctuous mouth-feel, sweet, peach, apricot and honey flavour, beautifully balanced with a long, lingering finish.

Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec 2001 (Loire Valley)
$27.80
Off-dry Vouvray is one of the wine world's neglected treasures that can be cellared for several years, but this one is drinking beautifully now. Straw colour with a nose of quince and honey; off-dry, full-bodied with a rich white honey and pear flavour and a vibrant, lengthy finish.

Marchesi de' Frescobaldi/Robert Mondavi "Luce della Vite" 1998 (Tuscany)
$99.00
A modern classic, a Sangiovese-based wine made in New World style. Dense ruby-purple colour with a garnet rim; the nose is tight at the moment with cedar dominating the berry and licorice fruit but the structure is firm and you can taste the richly extracted black fruits through the tannins. Two or three years in the cellar will make this a magnificent full-bodied and fleshy wine.

Antinori Tignanello 1999 (Tuscany)
$89.70
They don't come more elegant and suave than Tignanello, the seminal super-Tuscan wine. A blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Dense purple colour with a nose of cedar, vanilla, cherry and currants. Gorgeous, silky mouth-feel, poised and perfectly balanced within its bodice of supple tannins. Hold two to three years at least.
